Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 9, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta HOW TO LOOK MANLY a beard SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) What's the best way to look manly, mature, liberal and in- dustrious? Grow a beard, says psychology Prof. Robert Pellegrini of San Jose State University. Pellegrini says he found in that a group of col- lege students believes the more hair a man sports on his face, the more he is judged to possess those quali- ties. Pellegrini says he paid eight students each to shave whiskers to stages and had photographs taken of each man at each from full beard to goatee to moustache and finally clean shaven. Each photo was then rated by 128 college students, both men and women, on a scale from one to 10 on such quali- ties as masculinity and turity of each shaven, semi- shaven and non-shaven sub- ject. "There seems to be a posi- tive relation between the amount of hair on the per- son's face and the perception of Mm as masculine, mature, good-looking, self-confident, courageous, liberal, non-con- formist and Pel- legrini said. Pellegrini, who plans to do further studies on beards and their wearers, has shaved off his own beard. "They're more trouble than they're he said. Calgary Power receives extension on plant work CALGARY (CP) Calgary Power Ltd., has been provided 14-month extension to build waste heat cooling faculties for the first two units at its new Sundance power plant on Lake Wabamun, 40 miles west of Edmonton. The Alberta Energy Re- sources Conservation Board announced Friday no warm water from the units is to be discharged into the lake after Jury 1, 1975. The decision, subject to au- thorization by the Lieutenant- Governor in council, also al- lows the commissioning of a third 375-megawatt unit in Oc- tober, 1975 to accommodate es- calating energy requirements. In June, 1972, the board is- sued an approval for construc- tion of a third and fourth unit at the plant with the condition that no beat from the first two 300 megawatt units be released into the lake after April 30, 1974. Cooling facilities for the third and fourth units would be required if the company could not prove by Oct 81, 1974 that heated water from them would not have an adverse effect on the lake. Calgary Power applied to have construction of cooling faculties for the first two units deferred to permit further en- vironmental studies. The need for these facfliteis reconsidered Oct. would be 31, 1974, along with the need for facia- ties for the third and fourth units. But the board refused (bis application. Approval was given for con- struction of a 650-acre cooling pond to be operative in Jt4y, 1975. Although advanced commis- sioning of the third unit would allow warm water to be dis- charged into the lake, the board noted no warm water from the first two units would be returned to the lake. As a re- sult tiie impact of the plant on the lake would be substantially reduced in 1975 and the first half of 1976. A wish granted Sugizo Makomuro, 95, is going blind slowly but inexorably.

July 1973 THI lETHMIDOl HiftALO 13 Britain may force Ulster's hand by scaling down troop strength LONDON (CP) With politi- cal leaders In Northern Ireland Jockeying for positions of in- fluence, fears seem to be grow- ing that Britain has readied the end of its tether in trying to settle the region's massive problems. This fear has been expressed many times in the past and has always proven groundless. But many observers now be- Heve that Westminster is se- riously considering setting deadlines for the withdrawal of the or so British troops in Ulster unless rapid progress is made toward the achievement of peace. Some sources indicate that William Wbitalaw, Britain's sec- retary for Northern Ireland, hopes the new Ulster assembly, elected recently, can begin to function by the end of Septem- ber and that troops can start coming home before December, In any case, sources indicate, Wbitelaw is reluctantly coming to the conclusion that whatever happens, some scaling down of British force levels in the North will become essential to mollify domestic opinion which seems to be growing less favorable to continued presence in Ulster. The future of the assembly is still clouded with uncertainly, despite optimistic noises from Ulster's leaders. NO CLEAR CONTROL No single party has emerged with clear control of the TMeat body, although Hie pre- dominantly-Protestant Unionist party, led by former premier Brian Faulkner, holds 22 seats. The mainly-Roman Catholic Social Democratic and Labor party (SDLP) controls 19 seats and bard-line Protestants, pledged to mating the assembly unworkable, bold 15. Hie remaining seats are di- vided among unofficial Union- ists and moderates from minor parties but these members ar badly divided in their views and are given little chance of form- ing united front. Major questions hang over the exact powers which the British government will allot to the assembly as well as over Union- ists and SDLP can agree to share power. But these are trivial issues Nude air passenger idea cure-all for hijacking TORONTO (CP) Airline passengers have made less suggestions on ways to stop air piracy ranging from sleeping gas to trapdoors, a United States government of- ficial told the International Association of Insurance Counsel's convention. However, the only cure-all proposal submitted, said James M. Yohe, deputy direc- tor of the Federal Aviation Administration, "is that all passengers would board in tin nude so they couldn't carry weapons aboard." One person said we should pump sleeping gas into the plane to put all the passen- gers, including the hijacker, he said, adding the only problem with the sugges- tion is that the gas might kin passengers with heart ox res- piratory ailments. "Another one suggested we have a trapdoor at the cock- Mr. Yohe said. "The pi- lot would press a button and out the hijacker would go." He -was quick to point out that those who suggested this scheme were not as heartless as would appear. They also made provisions for the stringing of nets under the plane to save the ejected hi- jacker for trial. compared with the continuing guerrilla campaign being waged across Northern Ireland by the outlawed Irish Republican Army The IRA has succeeded in dis- rupting every form of govern- ment in Ulster smco the latest round of violence began in 1969. Many observers doubt that the situation will be any different this time. PLEDGED TO REVENGE In addition, militant Protes- tant groups are pledged to re- venge any terrorist attack by the IRA and are doing so with regularity. Bom militant Roman Catho- lics and Protestant extremists are opposed to the limited form of government offered by Cte British: The Roman Catholics because they want stronger ties with the neiboring Irish repub- lic and the Protestants because they want greater autonomy. British government officials continue to argue that extremist groups have the support of only a tiny minority in Ulster. But the fact that these militants have continued to function, with startling effectiveness, for nearly four years, tends to cast serious doubt on Westminster's appraisal. If the assembly is unable to Function satisfactorily, some sources believe, British Prime Minister Heath will announce a deadline for the withdrawal of troops as a last resort and in the hope of forcing the factions in Ulster to come to some agreement among themselves. Liam Gosgrave, prime minis- ter of the Irish republic, ap- peared to have this possibility in mind when he warned a don audience recently against any withdrawal" bom Ulster, "I suppose it is said Cosgrave, "that a situation of great uncertainty caused by the imminence of such a with- drawal might make political leaders more amenable to the idea of an "accommodation. "But it seems to me more probable that there would be an immediate and frantic at- tempt by the communities to consolidate their positions and clean out pockets of opposition. And this seems to be a prescription for civil war."
